Seeing so many accidents most of them major happening all over the world...Wondering why the owners of the bus lines, airlines and ships do not improve their company.

Airplane Accident

There have been so many accidents happening around the world. The most recent airplane accident is the missing MH370 Malaysia airlines which flew on March 8 and never found. I still say missing even if they said it was found after so many days on March 24 but up to now they have not officially confirmed debris or bodies found. They just confirmed that it crashed. Upon researching and hearing on the news, there have been 80 unsolved missing planes the first being Amelia Earhart's plane. It makes you wonder why they were never found. Some were also passenger planes, what happened to the poor people? Why do they disappear without a trace. I really feel sad for the families left behind not knowing what happened. it would be better to have proof of the death so you can pray for them and try to move on because not really knowing you are stressed out and worried. You can't concentrate.

Major Bus Accidents here in the Philippines

In the first picture this happened Dec. 16, 2013. They have not found out the cause but the driver suddenly swerved and fell off the elevated freeway, 18 died and 16+ injured. The second picture, that accident happened Feb. 1, 2014, going to a mountain province 14 were killed including a well know Filipino comedian and 2 foreigners who were tourists. 32 were injured. The last picture just happened recently April16, 2014. The bus rammed into a cargo truck in one of the provinces, 5 dead including a 2 yr old child and 15 were injured.
Since it is the Holy Week in the Philippines a lot of people are going home to the province and a lot of accidents happens because the owners of the bus lines are more interested in the income instead of the people. The main causes were either faulty brakes, tires that are thin and smoothed (flat no ridges) and drivers that are tired and sleepy because of the long drives without rest or relievers.
I wish they would improve makes me scared to go on long travels. We always have to pray and be alert. Most of the dead were those that sleep on the bus because of a long travel either going to work early morning or going home after a night work.

Korean Ferry Accident

This just happened. And the worse part most were student going on a field trip. 475 passengers so far 9 confirmed dead but more will be confirmed because there are still 287 missing people and bodies still stuck inside the turned-over ferry. 325 were students and some faculty going to Jeju for a 4 day trip. The ferry flipped onto its side and filled with cold water off the southern coast of South Korea. Divers and rescuers tried to search but the cold and strong currents prevented them from doing much. As of the news earlier so far 179 survivors and 9 dead were accounted for. Survivors said that the rescue didn't go well.They were all wearing life jackets and had they all jumped in the water more would have survived, the problem was they were told to stay in. So many were trapped inside and the windows were hard to break. sometimes poor management is the problem.

Prayers for safe Travel

I want to share a few prayers that maybe we could all say before traveling or going on a journey. This is for travel or when traveling. So we will have peace of mind.

Before Going On A Journey

These are just short prayers to ask for protection and to have a safe trip or journey. It doesn't hurt to get protection because even if we are careful sometimes it is the other person or vehicle at fault.

That would be terrible to be told to stay in and then be trapped.
